Is there something about you, or a challenge that you have faced, that makes where you are today more
My nose. I have a great, big nose. I am still very self-conscious about it. When I walk in a room it is the first
thing I can see everyone look at.
What’s the best lesson you have learned from your father?
My father is very kind, and I don’t think I am anywhere near as kind as he is, he is a really kind man, and if I
could take anything from him it would be that. I think kindness affects so many parts of your life. You are drawn to
people who are kind. The more I grow up the more I have learned that I want to hang around people who are kind, it
makes you feel good.
What made you who you are today?
Absolutely, my nose. No, having two brothers. I am in the middle and I have been bashed from both sides and I feel
like that must have done me some good. I am saying this on behalf of all middle children.
What do you want to do before you die?
Climb Everest. I would love to do it. I was obsessed with it when I was younger, I used to have posters of it on my
wall at school. I used to read so many books on it. I was probably more obsessed with the idea rather than the
actual reality of climbing it, but I still watch documentaries on it. If I could have a realistic opportunity to
climb it, I would love to. I would have to take extra clothing for my nose.
What would be your first move in a zombie apocalypse?
I would like to think of a positive outcome to a zombie apocalypse. It would be interesting to find a pretty zombie
chick who is not as wacky as the other ones, and see if you can breed and make a hybrid zombie-human. I’d win her
over with my nose and my kindness. Truth be told, I’d probably run a fucking mile.
Who is your best friend?
Where in the world would you go to film a terrible movie?
A part of me would love to go to the North Pole, but I know that once I was there it would be cold. Then I would go
to the Amazon. I was obsessed with lost cities when I was younger.
Describe the meal you would have every day in heaven?
Steak and chips, simple as that. A lovely fillet, with a bit of Béarnaise on the side, bit of Dijon and a
rocket-and-avocado salad. Oysters to start and a glass of yummy red, a Château Latour or Haut-Brion; banoffee pie
What is the greatest piece of music ever created?
Oscar Peterson’s C Jam Blues
Who is the most beautiful woman you’ve never met?
What are you up to now and are you happy?
I have just finished a play called Dangerous Liaisons at the Donmar in London; now on to Kingsman 2. I am happy,
actually, life is good and I am very grateful.
